Sex Offender Search & Lookup

An individual is classified as a sex offender if his conviction is for a sexually oriented crime such as rape, child pornography, and prostitution. Federal law mandates that such an offender must provide his information to local law enforcement for filing in the state sex offender registry and the national sex offender registry. In Washington County, you can visit the Sheriff’s Alert page to find sex offenders residing in the area. Keep in mind that not all offenders submit their information. Some records may only show last known addresses.

Bail and Bail Bondsman

Bail is the amount of money, property, or bond to be paid to the court for the temporary release of a defendant awaiting trial. The payment will serve as a guarantee that the defendant will show up at all of his scheduled court appearances. A refund will be given after the trial minus a 3% administrative fee. Failure to appear in court will result in the forfeiture of the bail as well as having a warrant issued for the arrest of the defendant. A defendant is required to stay in jail until the case is dismissed or he is released if bail is not paid.

To pay bail, the defendant must give the exact amount because the courts of New York do not give change. However, they will accept different forms of money in one transaction if needed. These include:

  • US Cash
  • Cashier’s Check (must not be more than the amount of bail)
  • Money order from Western Union or a bank (must be no more than $1000 in each order)
  • Credit card (includes an 8% processing fee)
  • Debit card

    A bond agent is in the business of posting bail for pretrial inmates who cannot afford to do so on their own. A fee will be charged and this is non-refundable. The New York State Insurance Department regulates the bail bond industry which means that the fees have been placed in a tiered system to make calculating the fee easy:

    For a $200 bond or less, the fee is $10.
    For a $3000 bond or less, the fee is 10% of the bail.
    For a bond that falls between $3001 to $10000, the fee is 10% of the first $3000 and 8% for the remaining amount.

    For a bond that is more than $10000, the fee is 10% of the first $3000 and 8% for the amount that falls between $3000 and $10000, and 6% for the remaining amount.

    If you want to learn what the fee of a $15000 bond is, you just need to get 10% x $3000 + 8% x $7000 + 6% x $5000. Using this formula, the bond fee is $1160.
